Does Obama Hate White People Or Is He Simply Incompetent? — President Barack Obama checked the box on his census form “Black, African Am., or Negro” and only that box.
The Census Bureau is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce which Obama oversees as president.
Here is how the reference book created by the Census Bureau says the census race question should be addressed:
The race question must be answered for each member of the household. Mark all boxes for the appropriate races.
Mark the “White” box if this person has origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. This includes people who indicate their race as “White” or report entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Near Easterner, Arab, or Polish.
Mark the “Black, African Am., or Negro” box if this person has origins in any of the Black racial groups of Africa. This includes people who indicate their race as “Black, African American, or Negro,” or provide written entries such as African American, Afro-American, Kenyan, Nigerian, or Haitian.
Obama is more than half white as per the census directions since his mother was entirely of European background while his father’s side includes Arab blood. For some reason, however, he declined to follow his own directions by checking the white box along with the black one.
Maybe he’s just a clueless incompetent who can’t follow directions, which is the explanation to which I lean.
Or maybe he just doesn’t like white people which should be troubling to the vast majority of Americans who happen to be white.
